Sammanfattning

This two-wave study investigates identity processes and content in identity interviews concerning romantic relationships, and how this is related to involvement in romantic relationships in the late twenties. Results revealed that the four identity statuses were equally common at age 25 (N = 136) as they were at age 29 (N = 124). Although 54% were stable in identity status, 46% changed identity status between measurements. Stability in identity status was a typical pattern for all identity statuses, except moratorium. Overall, the content in individuals’ identity narratives seemed to express a strong norm concerning attitudes and expectations of romantic relationships. The few associations between identity status and identity content indicated a somewhat stronger adherence to norms in the foreclosure group and a somewhat lesser adherence to norms in the diffusion group. Involvement in a romantic relationship was more common among individuals who, at age 29, had established commitments and who viewed involvement in romantic relationships as an important life goal. The study illustrates how considering identity processes and content may lead to a deepened understanding of identity development within salient domains.
